Ordinary Magic: Working with Survivors of Violence
Provided by: Vera National Resource Center for Reaching Victims

Date: May 17. 2019

Time: 12:00 am – 1:30 am ChST

Resilience builds our ability to overcome risk, oppression and adversity to succeed in life. Researchers have been studying resilience for about 50 years and find that resilience is everywhere. It only takes ordinary interactions to help build or bolster the magic of resilience. That resilience helps people overcome the challenges in their lives while we try to change the conditions that create those challenges. This webinar will explore how we can work with survivors in a way that continues to build their resilience.

Invisible Dangers - Repetitive Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries and Strangulation in Women Experiencing Intimate Partner Violence
Provided by: Casa de Esperanza

Date: May 17, 2019

Time: 3:30 am – 4:30 am ChST

Globally, nearly 1 in 3 women over the age of 15 have experienced intimate partner violence (IPV), and several reports have shown that women subjected to IPV experience repetitive mild traumatic brain injuries (rTBIs) at alarmingly high rates. Women have also reported high rates of symptoms (cognitive difficulties, depression, anxiety, sleep problems) that are consistent with outcomes following rTBIs in other populations. However, for women experiencing IPV, many of these symptoms have been overlooked or interpreted as being associated with partner violence itself, rather than TBIs. Consequently, there has been a lack of data that can be used to guide our understanding and ability to address effectively the effects of IPV-related TBIs. In this webinar, I will present data on the effects of IPV-related TBI on women's cognitive and psychological functioning as well as structural and functional neural connectivity. I will also address ways to identify and assess for potential MTBIs as well as ways to improve interactions to more effectively work with women who have experienced IPV-related TBI. As the neural consequences of strangulation may interact with or exacerbate effects of IPV-related TBIs, I also touch on recognizing and understanding strangulation in these women as well.
